Hotel is relatively new but you wouldn't know it by their rooms. They look old and well old! We requested a king and got a small double, with two beds. Very hot in the room and no matter how low we put the thermostat we couldn't cool it down. The worst was the sewer smell from the bathroom. Staff were very nice, restaurants were good, and they have a great breakfast buffet. Hotel is huge and spread out, if your not a walker who like to hike up hills to get to the restaurants then you have the option of calling for a cart. For the one night we were there it was okay, but any longer and I would have asked for a different room.

Room Tip: The hotels have villa's on the beach which looked very nice. If you don't like to hike then...

M husband surprised me with a trip to the Cove Rotana on our first wedding anniversary. We were upgraded from our standard rooms to a 1 bedroom villa which is quite luxurious and welcoming. It had a large balcony which opened to a smal creek. The check in was swift and we were dropped off to our room, on the way allowing us to view the spectacular layput of the resort - I only wish it was a residential resort - what I would do to love in a place like this!
We were greeted with a nice anniversary mousse cake - Yumm
we headed down to their main restaurant where they were serving an Indian buffet that night - there is nothing to write about this really - I did wish we chose something else as the food was very bland and nothing outstanding enough even for a regular dinner let alone an anniversary celebration.
The next morning we headed down to the beach only to discover the beach was actually a sandy area which was separated from the sea by a small rock wall due to the tides at this beach being very high - so unfortunately we didnt enjoy any of the water.
The breakfast was OK again nothing to write home about.
Overall the staff were very pleasant, rooms and the resort itself was beautiful.
Only let down was the food but hopefully if you get the time try the restaurants in the resorts nearby.

Room Tip: get the villas better than the regular rooms

Dear AnjuAshish,

First of all, belated congratulations on the occasion of your 1st wedding anniversary! We are honored that your husband selected our resort to celebrate this special day.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review on the TripAdvisor. We are glad to note that you in general enjoyed our resort facilities and services with upgraded accommodation to a one bedroom villa.

With much regret we noted that our culinary team did not meet your expectations in regards to the quality and variety of our dishes on the buffet during the Indian theme night for which we sincerely apologize. The Cinnamon offers daily changing theme nights from “Oriental Sympathy”, “Temptations from the Sea”, “Central & Southern American” to “Pan Asian” and “Barbeque and Live Cooking”.

For a next stay with us celebrating a special occasion we suggest our Mediterranean Restaurant “Basilico” which offers a very tasty Mediterranean a la carte menu in a peaceful ambiance with superb setting overlooking the Arabian Gulf.

Thank you once again for recommending The Cove Rotana Resort on Trip Advisor, and we look forward to welcoming you back.


Kind Regards,


The Executive Assistant Manager of
The Cove Rotana Resort - Ras Al Khaimah

This is a beautiful property overlooking the sea with small villas on the hillside. There are 2 main restuarants, an Italian and the other international buffet style.
There are a couple of bars one in the main building and 1 by each of the 2 pools and a 3rd on the beach.You can get snacks at all the bars.
The private beach is well maintained with shades and sunbeds. Plenty of clean towels and toilets.
There is a good sports center so bring your trainers and shorts for a holiday workout. There is also a small spa with treatment rooms. Prices for treatments for both men and women are average, quality of treatments average.
Rooms vary in size according the villa and some with own small pool but you probably will not use and go to the busier beach or larger pool areas.
Out of the hotel you are some distance so a taxi ride to the centre of the small town of Ras Al Khaimah. There are a few local restuarants to try to escape the hotel!
For shopping better to take a taxi direct to Dubai malls for a day out from the hotel. Its around 1hr ride to Dubai where there are plenty of things to do.
Its a good hotel too for families with a kids club where you can drop off the children to play. Its aimed at kids 2- 10 but well supervised.

8 days of nice, relaxing and hustle-free holiday. Staff polite and friendly. Check-in was fast as we have arrived later in the evening. Room was always kept clean. We never used any of two pools as we were concentrating on a nice sandy Rotana beach that might need a bit of grooming just a tiny little bit. Breakfast was good and nutritious, dinner was very good and we loved the inclusion of mineral water and 1 soft drink per person in HB package.
Me and my wife have enjoyed every minute of our stay in Cove Rotana RAK.

I stayed here for two nights and will not willingly return until the potential this hotel offers is met.

Check-in was delayed because rooms weren't cleaned which was a big inconvenience and the staff weren't apologetic.

In the villa, water was leaking over the bathroom floor from the hose. To the hotel's credit, they fixed it promptly, but having just had the room cleaned, this shouldn't have happened.

There were ants in the kitchen and no bottle opener to enjoy items from the mini bar.

Like many hotels in the region, this one is spaced out and requires a buggy to get around from the lower levels to the reception up the hill. Calling a buggy doesn't guarantee its arrival, sometimes you have to call twice because the message wasn't passed on.

Internet is not included and needs to be purchased separately at a high rate.

Breakfast is the best buffet of the day. Otherwise, the food is no different to any other buffet. If dining at an outdoor buffet, the food isn't hot, rather it is warm.

The resort is a relaxing place with nice surroundings, a good beach and a nice beach bar, but for my money, I won't return until the service improves. There is potential but poor service had a huge impact on my stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool villa
